The Mysteries of Magnetism
This lesson will explore the connections between magnetism in natural materials and electromagnetism. The ultimate goal will be for students to form an understanding that the source of magnetism in natural materials is moving charges. It is helpful, but not required, for the students to have some work with electricity, and other distance forces (such as gravity or the electric force).

Observations on Collaborative Design and Multimedia Usage in Virtual Design Studio
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.

1.2.6 Defining global markets

Global markets for manufactured goods, as opposed to, say, primary commodities such as oil and timber, arose largely in the second half of the twentieth century as trade between countries intensified. The lowering of transport costs and the relative fall in trade barriers enabled firms in one country to compete with a domestic rival in another. The supply of manufactured goods across the globe as a result of worldwide demand, principally from the affluent economies, thus heightened competitio

Introduction

The course explores what it means to become a critical social work practitioner by using a series of activities and readings to guide you through some new and important concepts. An understanding of ‘critical perspectives’ will help you take a positive and constructive approach to the challenging problems that arise in social work practice.

You will be introduced to a critical understanding of the nature and boundaries of personal and professional discretion and judgement in the del

Science Bulletins: New Stem Cell Method Shows Promise
The University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers who turned ordinary skin cells into stem cells in 2007 have cleared a major safety concern of using those cells in research: their risk of cancer. Their previous process used a virus to insert several genes into the DNA of skin cells. The genetic code of these genes naturally reprograms cells to revert to their original stem cell state. There was just one problem—the new stem cells were cancer-prone. The team's new method uses a different vehicl

Science Bulletins: Mapping "Hobbit" History
The remains of a group of one-meter tall people who lived as recently as 12,000 years ago were found on the Indonesian island of Flores in 2003. Researchers have been examining the fossils ever since, seeking clues to where the Flores people fall on the human family tree and how they became so small. A new analysis by Kieran McNulty of the University of Minnesota and Karen Baab of Stony Brook University adds to growing agreement that these so-called "hobbits" were a distinct species of the Homo

Science Bulletins: Learning vs. Remembering: A Brain Battle ?
Our everyday affairs require many different brain functions that seem to occur simultaneously. Recently, neuroscientists from the University of Amsterdam and Duke University tested the human brain's ability to handle two tasks in quick succession: learning new information and recalling information already learned. Brain scans showed that a "switchboard" region in the frontal lobe seems responsible for fluidly and rapidly shifting between learning and remembering to avoid a bottleneck in our neu

Science Bulletins: Ancient Graves Reveal Family Ties
In 2005, a team of archaeologists unearthed a well-preserved group of 4,600-year-old graves in the agricultural region of Eulau, Germany. People were buried three and four to a grave, an unmistakable stamp of the Corded Ware Culture, the earliest farmers in the region. Yet the intimate arrangement of the burials—some people were facing each other and had arms interlinked—prompted a deeper investigation. DNA testing revealed that their orientation in death reflected an important connection i
